Fair Tax Mark commissioned ICM Unlimited to conduct nationally representative research among adults in Britain looking at the public’s view of corporation tax and tax avoidance.

A link to the full report, prepared by Fair Tax Mark, can also be found below.
The findings of the research were exclusively covered by the Mirror:
Some of the key findings of the research include:
- Around eight in ten adults in Britain agree that they would rather shop with a business which can prove it’s paying its fair share of tax (79%, up two points compared to 2019) and that they would rather work for a business which can prove it’s paying its fair share of tax (82%, +4)
- Over four in ten adults now say that the UK Government should not reduce the amount of tax companies pay in order to attract foreign investment into the country to create UK jobs (42%), a rise of eight percentage points compared to last year
- Just over eight in ten agree that all businesses benefiting from Government bailouts should have to agree to a set of conditions that prohibit tax avoidance and enforce responsible tax conduct (82%), a figure that rises to nearly nine in ten among those who voted Conservative in the 2019 general election (88%)
